09.06.2017: New Exhibition, New Blood, and New Thoughts

Now it has been a couple of weeks since the Exhibition One module, I can finally feel it coming out of my system, the tension and stress that builds up with the workload and the hanging. I think an outsider will never really appreciate how much work has gone into something like that; its not…

25.05.2017: Unconditional

Just a little painting I have done this afternoon. My work will begin June 1st for the new and final module.  

18.05.2017: Hanging

(Not that kind of hanging). It’s exhibition time! Which means that we are approaching the end of the second semester (of 3) being the longest term of my life – lasting 12 months. Deep down I am filled with excitement & happiness to be having my work on show in a public sphere, but the lack of…

11.05.2017: Update

A lot seems to have happened since I last creeped on here. Its so difficult to find the time to just sit down and write about what’s been going on. Where to begin? The degree show will begin it’s hanging process for postgraduates next week. I’m really lucky I have grey painted walls that shouldn’t…

23.03.2017: Joe

Completed a commission piece for my younger sister, of our former cat, Joe.

16.03.2017: Cut Out the Ugly

This time in two months my work will (should) be hanging ready for exhibition. Two months sounds like a long time until I realise we are 3 months into the new year and that time just flew by! No need to stress though…. right?!? Not really. My latest piece I have been working on, number eighteen now…

10.03.2017: Morning Tidy

Friday mornings are great for me to do little odd bits before work;   Painting round the edges of nearly finished paintings is a great way to sort of unwind. It’s like tidying up your own mess, not really something you want to do, but it always feels great once it’s done. I would say…

08.03.2017: Tiny Aspects

I have recently found myself at a standstill. My work has suffered; the outcome is knotted and overworked. I think I am anxious for the show in May and getting enough done by then, but there is no use in worrying, it will get done or it won’t. Worrying won’t contribute to any good, only…

07.03.2017: Studio

  My ‘body’ of work for the first exhibition (May), with probably only 5% up to scrap for the challenge. I struggle to paint only what I need and end up with a surplus of paintings that never really get seen. I shall upload my pieces so far to my gallery page within the next couple of…

28.02.2017: Double Trouble

  Look who is making a tidy distraction for me again….Pablo. This year so far has brought in exactly 0 commissions. I wish to say my studies have made up for the lack of extra curricular work, but I don’t know who I’d be fooling! I painted this to try to help me unwind a…

15.02.2017: Work and Rework

Hello angels. I keep having urges to write things down I am doing, but it never transcribes to my website! So, here I am, typing it in now! I think I shall give the old page a little spring awakening too over the next couple weeks. It needs an update. It would be really great…
